Psalm 126

A Harvest of Joy

A Song of Ascents.

1

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,

we were like those who dream.

2

Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

and our tongue with shouts of joy;

then it was said among the nations,

“The Lord has done great things for them.”

3

The Lord has done great things for us,

and we rejoiced.

 

4

Restore our fortunes, O Lord,

like the watercourses in the Negeb.

5

May those who sow in tears

reap with shouts of joy.

6

Those who go out weeping,

bearing the seed for sowing,

shall come home with shouts of joy,

carrying their sheaves.
